NARFE Commends the President for Supporting Implementation of Federal Pay Raise in 2020

September 3, 2019

In response to President Trump indicating that he will implement a 2.6 percent federal employee pay raise in 2020, NARFE National President Ken Thomas issued the following statement:

“NARFE is heartened by the president’s decision to support a 2.6 percent federal employee pay raise in 2020. While his budget request earlier this year called for a pay freeze, this reversal is a positive step to allow the federal government to better compete with the private sector to attract and retain a highly qualified, top-performing federal workforce, and improve morale for the millions of hardworking professionals who keep this country running safely and efficiently every day.

“However, the proposed 2.6 percent raise lags behind recent private sector pay increases, and NARFE continues to support the 3.1 percent average raise approved by the House in July, which includes a locality pay adjustment.

“I appreciate the President’s recognition of the federal workforce, but to maintain parity with both the military members they support and the private sector, federal employees deserve a pay adjustment based on market values where they work.”
